Date :
  • June 2017

Growth in Vietnam’s passenger vehicle market is currently the fastest in Southeast Asia, with sales reaching ~225,000 units by 2020. Vietnam’s increasing population and a rising middle class with disposable income are driving demand for passenger vehicles as consumers begin to move away from a traditional reliance on two-wheel transportation. Additionally, the impact of trade deals will drive further opportunities, where tariffs on passenger vehicle imports among ASEAN-member countries will be reduced from 50% in 2015 to 0% in 2018. However, main barriers consisting of high tariffs and fees are hindering the industry to flourish. Meanwhile, local manufacturing remains limited with a shallow supply base, resulting in a reliance of imports. Can Vietnam overcome the challenges to further the development of the automotive market?
